He is one of the funniest ever Irish comedians but Dara O'Briain really needs to work on his striking technique with a hurl.

The Bray native is an avid sports fans and is constantly updating his Twitter followers on all things GAA and his beloved Arsenal.

He was at the home of cricket in Lord's to to highlight the fact that Ireland will play England in May in a one-day series for the first time ever.

Photographer James Cheadle was looking for the money shot and asked Ó Briain, who was wielding a sliotar and a hurl, to strike the ball over his head.

He wasn't expecting the Wicklow man to channel his inner Cuchulainn and hit him square on the head with the ball.

Was it a hilarious accident or pinpoint accuracy? Check it out below:
